An elderly woman asks the Ghostbusters for help with something that's been haunting her attic for 70 years.

Peter: (Having a conversation with himself) 'So, Peter, did you have a nice day?' Oh, yeah. I argued with a hat and coat rack. 'Oh, really?' Yeah.

Peter: Seven years of college and I can never remember if it's positive to negative or positive to positive.

Egon: Maybe the noise was physical in origin. Squirrels on the roof, perhaps.

(A huge pounding sound starts to shake the whole house)

Peter: Squirrels, Egon?
Egon: Okay, fat squirrels, playing basketball. Satisfied?

Peter: How come we never meet anything cute? It's always big and mean with lots of teeth.

Janine: Come along Mrs. Faversham, I'll show you where they figure out new ways to do stupid things.
